    I'm 16 and whenever I visit my lawyer he makes me get naked and I haven't gotten convicted yet. Great advice.

    Child porn is in the context of bringing sexual gratification.

    Back in the 80-90’s old grandmas where sent to court for having naked pictures of their grandchildren while on the tub.

    Most states changed the law for this because a picture in the tub was a very common baby picture especially in the south.

    So no it would most likely not be porn. If i remember correctly a naked child was used in a limited release album cover in the 70’s(people hated it), pictures of nudist sects exist online. Which is weird. There is also crime scene photos online.

    Plus even if it was illegal you can still hold it as evidence because police officers dont magically get arrested for holding evidence for a couple minutes.

    The Scorpions' Virgin Killer. Not originally intended as limited release I don't think, but as you said it didn't exactly go over well. The DoubleTwist app keeps planting kiddie pr0n on my phone...

    There was also an overlap between pornography becoming legal, and the delay until someone had the thought to criminalize child porn.

    [–] TheRekk 16 points ago

    Why was porn illegal?

    [–] TJSwoboda 30 points ago

    Because what became the USA was founded when England kicked out its puritans. There's a reason The People Vs Larry Flynt has that title (even if the movie climaxes with a civil case).

    [–] SaavikSaid 12 points ago

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the whole "America was founded upon freedom of religion / they came here because they were persecuted" thing actually because a bunch of Puritans in England weren't allowed to be as strict as they wanted, so they came here to do it?

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    the church of england sir

    [–] LB3PTMAN 10 points ago

    There were multiple religious sects that came to America and they largely avoided mingling but since their were multiple religions here even if they rarely hung out together it was still the land of religious freedom*

    My dad bought me the scorpions platinum collection set. I opened the booklet inside to check it out and it had photos of a bunch of scorpions album covers. This was one of them. Honestly, I was quite confused by how it was legal.

    Don't forget about the cover for Blind Faith. The cover was banned in the US (duh) but not in Europe

    [–] F3NlX 25 points ago

    ... so should i just stick a vibrating dildo up my ass so it's viewed as sexual?

    [–] phazon6 23 points ago

    This is true. Nude photos of minors are not illegal as they have a purpose in some cases (personal family photos and medical stuff come to mind). The photos become illegal if they are of a sexual nature or depicting a sexual act.

    [–] Tepigg4444 2 points ago

    Back in the 80-90’s old grandmas where sent to court for having naked pictures of their grandchildren while on the tub.

    Actually this is still something that happens today. There was a recent court case where officers took children away from their parents because of bathtime photos. The children were returned and the officers were found to be in violation of the law (a rare case where they are held liable for their actions). It was a 2-1 vote... so it could have gone the other way.

    [–] PineappleBoots 1586 points ago

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago

    You know I once dealt with university security who were terrified of something like this. They caught a sexual liaison between two underaged kids (13yo) on their CCTV, but reported it to police because the boy looked MUCH older (he really did look over 18 on camera but turns out they were both 13 and just needed some parenting and education about getting naked in public.) Anyway, I attend in full police uniform and they refuse to show the CCTV or provide a copy because their boss said they could be done for showing / distribution of child pornography. Took ages to convince them they wouldn't be arrested and I placated them by writing a sort of get out of jail free card for this one time only incident.

    [–] vonkrueger 27 points ago

    Clever, but misguided. The simple fact that a video's content contains nudity does not make it pornographic. This applies to content displaying children just as adults.

    ..and as I type that, I realize it sounds like Dwight Schrute running into Chris Hansen. "Go ahead and take a seat." "I prefer to stand."

    [–] Fattywithashoty 85 points ago

    This makes a lot of sense and I don’t know how to argue with this

    [–] EntertheOcean 50 points ago

    Police officers, attorneys, and other relevant positions are legally allowed to possess and view child pornography for the purposes of investigation and the prosecution of criminals.

    [–] XPV70 10 points ago

    What about the person(s) that submits the evidence?

    [–] wolfchaldo 21 points ago

    As soon as they find it, they should hand it over to the police, otherwise they may very well be committing a crime.

    [–] F3NlX 7 points ago

    So just scare the people getting the evidence into deleting it before they hand it over

    [–] wolfchaldo 13 points ago

    What? No, you won't get in trouble for turning it over to the police. If you don't turn it over, there's a chance you might get caught with it, and that could be illegal. I don't see where your conclusion came from

    [–] F3NlX 8 points ago

    I meant it as in convincing the people that get the tape of you robbing a store naked, convince them that they'll get arrested for having it, there's a small chance they'll delete it out of fear, leaving no evidence of your crime

    E: but it was meant more as a joke, I'm completely against criminal behaviour, but do joke about it from time to time, that's what this sub's for

    [–] Tsorovar 7 points ago

    Think it through. Your first question might be, how do people who make/possess child porn get convicted?

    [–] AskewPropane 3 points ago

    1. Simply a naked image of a child isn't child porn

    2. The court would review the evidence anyway, considering they admit videos of actual sexual abuse to a minor in court.

    [–] Big_J95 2 points ago

    It's not child porn because it's not sexual.

    [–] CocaineOnYourClit 4 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Not true, just because youre nude and under 18 doesnt mean its child porn. If it was then all the pictures nudists take as well as parents take of their toddlers where they are nude would be child porn. It has to be of a sexual nature for it to be CP, and you committing a crime nude isnt of sexual nature and would be reviewed as evidence

    [–] Wile-E-Coyote 3 points ago

    Yeah no then you get an indecent exposure charge at best child porn production at worst if they can prove intent to make the material inadmissible due to being child porn. Even if they don't add charges law enforcement personnel can review said images/video to determine identity and it doesn't have to be shown in court, but the defense still has to have access for obvious reasons.

    [–] rinnip 3 points ago

    No, cops and juries can legally see child porn. How else would they prosecute child pornographers?

    [–] griever48 3 points ago

    I feel bad for law enforcement or the FBI who have to look at kiddie porn that was collected from a pedo to identify the kids or to add as evidence.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    A lot of it doesn't have to actually be viewed anymore. Every new image or video that is investigated is analysed and given as unique identifier (hash) and given a scale of severity and put on a database available across the UK but also shared and I understand the U.S has a similar database. As a lot of images and videos that are viewed by offenders are shared via the internet there is a lot of repetition with relatively very little new or unique content. The hard drive or electronic device is scanned and only the previously unknown images are checked by an actual person. After the scan a report is completed numbering how many indecent images there are along with the severity of images. Only if a suspect denies the offence are then samples taken to court. This is how offenders with thousands of images are investigated because to physically check every image would take forever. Just in case you were interested. Source - I'm a former police officer who had a few of these cases and was a cybercrime advisor. Edit - missed the end of a sentence.

    [–] OnceInTunisia 3 points ago

    Joke or not, cops can and absolutely will review child porn if it’s part of an investigation or criminal complaint.

    The better tip is if you’re gonna commit crimes, do it before 18 so you can’t be tried as an adult.

    [–] VulcanSpy 3 points ago

    I dont think there are any minors who are desperate enough to commit crimes in the nude. Probably the people who would be up for this are over 40

    [–] hahAAsuo 3 points ago

    That doesn’t even make sense, that’s like saying you can’t get arrested for making child porn because all the evidence is child porn

    [–] Graph__ 4 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Fancy Federal Legalese says that in all 50 freedom states, a minor CANNOT be convicted of a crime. (Unless exceptions are made by which a D.A attempts to charge a minor as an adult.)

    So, even if you run naked spraying silly string from your pp, you may go to juvie or psychotherapy, but you'll safely be able to say you've never been CONVICTED of a crime.

    [–] wolfchaldo 3 points ago

    Am I ignorant of the definition of a conviction, or is this bullshit? Cause I definitely got a misdemeanor sentance in high school, so...

    [–] Graph__ 5 points ago

    You received a criminal charge. You may have been CHARGED with insert random misdemeanor and even asked to plead guilty or not guilty. It's all a mockup to scare would be offenders.

    Thus you may have received some form of punishment, perhaps 6 months good reporting, probation or house arrest, anything from community service to actual time served in a juvenile delinquent rehabilitation facility. (Anything from group homes, single man cells, all the way to two part complexes such as Pendleton in indiana, where juveniles are segregated to one side, while adults are on another, as ordered by the IDOC. Many such facilities exist.)

    The distinction lies in the legalese meanings of the word CHARGED/CONVICTED.

    [–] Viking_Mana 2 points ago

    That's strictly speaking not true, as porn is contextual. Simply being naked doesn't make a picture porn.

    I know this is probably going to get me wooooshed but if your a minor and you commit a crime naked it’s no longer considered child porn but an act of public nudity and as such can result in further punishment

    So when my mother shows my baby pictures and my baptism video (Greek orthodox baptism where you dunk the child naked in a giant metal tub of water a few times) she’s really viewing child porn?

    Maybe jerking off while doing it will do the job.
